Chicken and Brown Rice Casserole

Another great recipe from The Happy Housewife! I didn't have any zucchini on hand. I substituted onion with a little celery and red pepper (one cup total.) I also added extra cheese, just because!

Chicken & Brown Rice Casserole

2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, uncooked, diced
2 c milk
2 c brown rice
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 c shredded zucchini
1 c chopped carrots
1 c chopped broccoli
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika
1/2 shredded cheese (I used 2/3 c freshly shredded cheddar)

Mix all ingredients but cheese in a greased 9x13 baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees, covered, for 2 hours, stirring every 20 minutes. With five minutes of cooking time remaining, remove cover, sprinkle with cheese, and return to oven uncovered.
